The UAE-based universities have grown annually at 8-10 percent with the total student base across the local and international universities at more than 162,000 students, of which, Dubai alone is a host to more than 60,000 students. Out of these 60,000 students, 20 percent are graduate students while the remaining 80 percent students are studying the undergraduate level programs. The local education market is booming to the extent that more than 175,000 additional seats would be required in the K-12 segment alone in the next four years, and private schools are likely to fetch 90 percent of this number.
